Twenty-Five Years Ago Today...

Just realized that I first moved to Atlanta about twenty-five years ago this week (I'm not sure about the exact date). I do remember that I saw my first Atlanta Braves baseball game on August 1, 1978, the night that Pete Rose's 44 game hitting streak came to an end. The game ended dramatically with Rose striking out in the ninth inning with one last chance to keep the streak alive. The game was a rare Braves victory by the score of 16-4. If I remember correctly, four $6 tickets put my family about fifteen rows behind home plate. I thought it was a pretty cool night.

Have you been to any games this year, Chuck? Sherry and I have been wanting to get down there and go to one or two, but I don't think it's gonna happen since we've been so busy.

I haven't been to any games this year--S and I have been talking about going, but we're both very busy. I did get a chance to see a Georgia-Georgia Tech game at Turner Field a few weeks ago, which was pretty cool.
